Why Is Steve Convicted Not Guilty

I think that the author is subjective because of the way Steven was viewed when he was in court. When Steven was in court, I thought that he really shouldn't have been there. I think that because he really didn't do anything and he was accused of something he didn't do. I thought this because he was with the gang but, he didn't commit the murder. He was accused of it because he was with them at the wrong time in the wrong place and the witness Mrs. Henry saw his face and not the others. Before the trial began, other members of the gang, Bobo Evans and Osvaldo Cruz, admitted to being guilty. Steve Harmon, being the overachieving student and well rounded person that he is, was found innocent. Yang the careless thug, James King, was found guilty. As Steve attempts his defense, struggling with his innocence, he creates an excuse to save himself and to prove that he is innocent. However, he writes as if he knows he is guilty, but wants to cut himself some slack.

Steve uses rhetorical questions to imply that he knows what he did wrong, but does not want to admit to the crime. He writes his part in the crime casually, which further conveys the conflict in his mind. He depends on others to bring clarity to his mind, such as saying, "What did I do? The film Shawshank Redemption is about a banker, Andy Dufresne, who is convicted of murdering his wife and her lover in cold blood. He is sentenced to two consecutive life sentences in the Shawshank State Penitentiary. Andy makes a mistake of trusting the criminal justice system and agrees to cooperate fully. Despite the evidence placing him at the scene of the crime on the night of the murders, Andy has always maintained his innocence. It is at this prison where he meets a fellow inmate, Red, who was convicted and sentenced to life for planning and carrying out his wife's murder. Jeffery adjusted to prison life easily, but he wasn't aloud to be with other prisoners. He later convicted the officer to let him join the other prisoners. He got a job with two other prisoners. They're names where Jesse Anderson, a white supremacist and a convicted murderer. The other one was Christopher Scarver, an African American prisoner who was a diagnosed schizophrenic.

Instead of being sent to a detention centre, his father locked him up in his house and now he is mentally unstable from the years of isolation. The mockingbird also has a compelling importance due to the connections with Boo Radley and Tom Robinson. Harper Lee uses juxtaposition to highlight the contrast of a black man and a white man facing racism and discrimination. Two juveniles who have been tried as an adult would be Nathaniel Brazill who killed his teacher at the age of 13. Brazill got his GED and his law & paralegal certifications in jail. Similarly, Greg Ousley who killed his parents at the age of 14 is serving 60 years behind bars. According to Anderson, he is a model inmate, he is trustworthy behaving himself in prison and getting his education behind bars; got his bachelor's degree in liberal arts. This shows if a juvenile gets tried as an adult they have more time to think about what they have done and will work hard to get out and better themselves. Twelve Angry Men "A person is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law." In the play, Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose, a nineteen years old is on trial for the murder of his father. After many pieces of evidence were presented, the three that are weak include the one of a kind knife, the old men who heard the words "I'm going to kill you!

" and the woman who is in question because of her glasses. Based on these, the boy is not guilty. Friday, Thomas Tarbutton, a 58 year old man from Newport Beach was sentenced to 34 years and four months in state prison for running a 3 million dollar Ponzi Scheme. He was found guilty by an Orange County Superior Court jury. Thomas had eighteen accounts of grand theft, nine accounts of forgery, and eleven counts of using an untrue statement in the purchase or sale of a security and one count of use of a device or scheme to defraud, which are all felonies. I think Thomas should be sent to jail even though he will not live long enough to do the full 34 years. I also think the people who he used for their money should be paid back their money.

Convicting the Innocent: Where Criminal Prosecutions Go Wrong In Brandon L. Garrett's book, Convicting the Innocent: Where Criminal Prosecutions Go Wrong, he makes it very clear how wrongful convictions occur and how these people have spent many years in prison for crimes they never committed. Garrett presents 250 cases of innocent people who were convicted wrongfully because the prosecutors opposed testing the DNA of those convicted. Garrett provided simple statistics such as graphs, percentages, and charts to help the reader understand just how great of an impact this was. The way it was done there was no question that Steve Avery did it, but if it was done correctly he wouldn't have got arrested for the sexual assault in the first place. The sketch artist never drew what Penny told him. Instead he drew a picture of Steven Avery and asked her was it him. Penny had no choice but to say yes because it seemed very familiar. Another error was a sheriff being involved in the case so much that didn't even have anything to do with him. Even though Christina and her friends stop to talk to Marco, a well known drug dealer, she does not have reasonable suspicion because she did not see the drugs being passed. On the other hand, if Ward did not fail the test, then the police lied to him in an attempt to get him to confess. What makes the use of the polygraph significant to Ward and Fontenot's innocence is the role it played in the investigation. There are two options: either Ward truly failed the test, or the police lied to him to elicit a confession. Either way, there is no strong evidence that proves, or even indicates that Ward had anything to do with Denice Haraway. As he faced justice through the court system, advocates unnecessarily argued that he was only a child and too young to serve as an adult. To show that an individual's age should not be used as an excuse to justify their actions, Weir states "Some juveniles commit crimes so serious, so serious, that public safety mandates - and justice demands - full accountability in our criminal justice system. There are those who argue this is unfair and unjust.

Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon.

Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.

She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.

When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her.

When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.

This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her.

When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.

That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
